On Broadway TYa Hark RglterL Coprrlsfet. Drily Mirror. I; -v'fi fll TTie Private Papers of a Cub Reporter You probably read, in the stories about John Barrymore, how saddened he was over the loss of his interned Jap valet and the Jap's family . . . On the other hand some of Charles Chaplin's Jap servants turned out to be spies . . . The most ironic situation of all, we think, concerns Eugenia Clair Flatto, who will be Grand Hostess of the American Gold Star Mothers' annual convention here next week . . . Before the war, Mrs. Flatto had a loyal Jap gardener . . . He had been here for many years had even fought for this nation in the last big war . . . But, because he is Japanese he had to be interned . . . Mrs. Flatto now has a new gardener, who is acceptable to the authorities a German, who can't even speak English! One of President Roosevelt's closest advisers, a New Yorker, was feasting in a delicatessen . . . As he started to leave, the uwner handed him a small package . . . ''This," he explained, "is for the President. It contains some of my best corned beef and pastrami. Please take it to him with my compliments . . . The next day when the President opened the package, right on top of the spicy cold cuts were two dozen of the delicatessen man's cards . . . FDR sent for Steve Early and, handing the cards to him, dryly instructed: "Here pass these around to the various Embassies." U. S.' Freighter Sinks U-Boal 28 S A FLORIDA PORT, June (UP) The captain of a U. mercnant shin reDortpH Sati,,,. '.hat the gun crew of his vessel sank a U-boat off the coast of Cuba. Although naval regulations forbid the crew to talk of their exploits and navy officials did not say whether they considered the Axis raider sunk, the master of the merchantman said it was "almost certain that she sank" and the crew of the ship told how the u-Doat rose and then heeled! over on its side and sank. Vitamin C Juices Supplied to Allies WASHINGTON. June 28 (UP) The United States in the past year has supplied the United Nations, mainly Great Britain, with o.uuu gallons of orange lemon juice concentrate it announced todav. These juices contain much vi-mm C while nearly 100.-000 pounds of other vitamins also were sent abroad by ferrv bombers. It was said that certain vitamins are used to improve pi-lets' night eyesight.

GEORGE HESS1451 Emma Street, Honolulu Pho"c 2724 or 2767 After blackout 65273 British Fighters Hit Nazi Columns When FDR was Assistant Secretary of the Navy, they say, he was visited by some ladies of the Temperance Union. They wanted him to christen the ships with soda pop instead of champagne. "The trouble with you ladies," said Mr. Roosevelt, "is that you should encourage it. And get a great temperance lesson." "Why, how can we?" queried one of them. "Well," he replied, "after the first taste of wine, the ship takes to water and sticks to it ever after." Admirers of Herbert Bayard Swope were disappointed not to find an anecdote about him in our recent pillar called "Newspaperman Stuff." M. Throckmorton Conn, who says Swope is a guy you always find in a photo finish when newspapermen are discussed, relays this one about him. While exec editor down on The World, Swope formed a habit of depending a great deal for the exact time on the clock in the tower of The Tribune which was directly across the way . . . Every now and then the Trib clock would stop. This riled Swope no end ... So one day he got if off his chest by running this on the World's editorial page: "The Tribune tries to tell the administration how to run the government, yet cannot keep its own clock going.' NEW YORK, June 28 (UP) The Columbia Broadcastin Sys tem today heard the British radio report that British fighters destroyed and damaged lorries In an enemy column on the road between Bug Bug and Sidi Barrani in Egypt. "An enemy convoy along the coast road between Bug Bug and Sidi Barrani was sighted yesterday by some of our fighters," the British radio said. "This road hasn't the advantage of cover and when our fighters went into action, lorries of the column were destroyed and others damaged." Bread is reported to be selling for $4 a loaf in Athens, Greece. For Fine Furnishings . . . At Bailey's we show only the finest furniture real additions to any household.

One Italian Captain decided to do something about it, and' after a pep talk he charged: "Avanti!" ("Forward!") and sol shouting he led them into battle. i When he turned, the Captain found himself fifty yards ahead alone! With all his men still seated on the ground applauding! and yelling: "Bravo! Bravo!" i Jean Tennyson, at a literary tea the other day, heard the following remarks about her favorite author and was astonished . . . "Yes," said the hostess, "Hemingway came in and behaved so strangely. At lunch he suddenly sprang at the waitress wouldn't let her come near his table. Every time she came near him he'd jump at her. He made a dive for a cake and took it into the parlor where he devoured it greedily. Then he returned and glared at us" . . . Jean couldn't restrain herself any longer and asked: ''Are you sneaking of Mr. Ernest Hpminpwav?" "Heavens, no!" -was the reply. "Hemingway's our dog!" Reuben, the famed 5th Street host, spellbound some of us last night with the story of old Max Mefoofsky, who was suffering from insomnia "something tarribble!" .' . . one of his sons went to Mrs. Mefoofsky and said: "Mom, I know this is going to sound silly, but we've tried everything to help papa get some sleep. How about trying a hypnotist?" So one evening papa was taken to a leading hypnotist, who sent the family out of the room and went to work on the old gent . . . in sooming tones he cooed: "Now, Mr. Meffofsky, you are 9 6ili6 w oicck. iuu die going xo sieep nxe a baby. Close your: I eyes . . . All this accompanied by the usual waving of the fingers ! oeiore tne old boy's orbs, plus the other hocus-pocus . . . Slowly Meffofsky dozed off, and after an hour the hypnotist reported that he was fast asleep. 1 1 y-k 1 -1 1 . . . yn, aoexor, said Mrs. M., "dot's vunderfil. Could maybe 'S t? mine own nize:" . . . rne hypnotist said-' Yes, you may but promise not to wake him" . . . And so Mom-! ma tip-toed in to where Max was slumbering and stood there watching him. j Slowly and cautiously, Mefoof opened one eye, glanced around the place and fearfully whispered: "Did dot looneytick leave yat?"
